Brno Biennale Association (SBB)

In 1963, the Union of Czechoslovak Visual Artists (SCVU) and the Moravian Gallery in Brno co-founded the world’s first international graphic design competition, “The International Biennale of Graphic Design in Brno”. Since that, it has been organized with the patronage of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, and the City of Brno. Since 1991, the Brno Biennale Association (SBB) has replaced the role of the SCVU, and it became a professional organization of communication design, which concentrates members in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and honorary members also in other foreign countries.
